Great place to take kids, really family friendly. There are rabbits, donkeys, cows, chickens and goats . You can buy feed and have a great time feeding and playing

Good place for kids to see lots of barnyard animals, but this is not a petting zoo. Maybe worth a 30 minute stop. No fees for parking or admission.

What a beautiful little place to take your family. I emphasize "little" but it is so charming. Small little zoo, playground, picnic area, ponds, lakefront trail. All free. Bring seeds to feed the ducks, not bread. Will definitely visit again.

Nestled close to the Lake Ontario shore this lovely park offers a pathway through an enchanting green space. If you're luck enough to visit when the birds and animals are about, even better. Area set aside for picnics too. Love this spot!

paths for walking and seeing farm animals. turtles in the ponds is great. can bring your own lunch or snacks. fun for all ages. one disappointment is the fencing prevents a good photo. great place for waling on the paths and trails near the Lake.

I have been bringing my kids and now grandkids here since 2006....it’s a great place to see animals, have a picnic and play at the playground. Usually we stop at the Avondale dairy on our way home - but an ice cream truck showed up...More

I took my grand daughter there when she was down for her yearly vist. We were very disappointed the animals were fenced and too far away to see. Will not go back

No. This is just a stroll through park atmosphere. There are no concession stands, souvenir shops or similar. It is a bring your own from home. It is a semi-rural setting.
